How do I apply?
FACTS conducts the financial need analysis for all forms of Catholic school tuition assistance. The online application is available by clicking the link below. Please note, only one application is needed per family. It is important to list all children in Catholic school on one application. Completed online application and a fee of $25 must be submitted to FACTS between December 15 and February 28. Families will be notified of their award by the end of April. If you enroll at Mercy after Freshman Registration Night, we invite you to still apply for financial aid, but only a limited amount of tuition assistance is available after initial distribution.

In an effort to further streamline the awarding process, FACTS has made the decision to discontinue the ability for families to fax or mail supporting documentation, in favor of requiring documentation to be uploaded as part of the online application process. This change will be effective for the 2020-2021 application year, which begins September 3, 2019.
Additional tuition assistance is available through our scholarship and tuition discount programs, which include our Mercy Day scholarships, placement test scholarships, work study program and sisters' discount.
